Paying other party’s costs
Court of Appeal
“On an application for disclosure before commencement of proceedings a respondent was ordinarily awarded his costs. A costs order requiring him to pay all the applicant’s costs could be made only where it was clearly unreasonable to oppose the application or where the manner of opposition was so unreasonable as to make it appropriate to bear all of both parties’ costs.”
